I have had a few requests to create a shared calendar for a department so that a supervisor can easily and quickly reference to see when meetings are set up with external growers that we work with. Initially I create a mail enable Public Folder Calendar, but that quickly proved to be lacking some required features. Now I am looking at creating a resource calendar like a Resource Room Calendar.

I read that you can create a shared mailbox that is a resource mailbox. http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2009/02/26/3407028.aspx
But I have not been able to get it to auto accept like i can with the other Room Mailboxes. The shell command does not seem to work the same for this mailbox.

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-MailboxCalendarSettings -Identity "GCC" -AutomatePr
ocessing AutoAccept
Set-MailboxCalendarSettings : AutoAccept can only be enabled on resource mailbo
xes.

   Tasks.SetMailboxCalendarSettings

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this to auto accept or have you implemented something else to achieve similar results?

Have you tried:

get-mailbox | where{$_.ResourceType -eq “Room”} | Set-CalendarProcessing -AutomateProcessing AutoAccept

Open in new window

This is a not a room resource. We have resource rooms and I do not want to confuse users with additional rooms that are not actually rooms. I created this resource as a shared resource.

Try to enable the user account and then logon to the mailbox using OWA.  Once in OWA, go into Options -> Calendar -> Resource Scheduling and see if it is enabled.
